    I've cleaned the water reservoir outlet with a little brush and tried to run vinegar water through, but it still never starts the brew process of water going from reservoir to coffee.

    Light is on and warmer gets hot.

    My brewer worked for years until I was cleaning it with vinegar the other day and after two brewing cycles cleaning it would no longer pull the water through. The hotplate works but no coffee.

    My light is on, but will not pump the water out of the resavoir to go throught the grounds to make coffee. What is wrong? It is just a few month old.

Are you pouring the water into the water reservoir? My wife bought a BrewStation and the same thing happend to me the first time I used it. Of course, I did not have the directions. I filled the removable water/coffee tank, but did not transfer the water into the 'water' reservoir. The water does not drain by itself.

Works fine now.

Hi! Miele makes only small amount of coffee then all the rest of the water leaks into drip tray. Please note that no water is inside the machine or trash bin. Unit has been descaled & cleaned.

I really sounds like the machine is working properly (water flowing properly) and either the filter material is too thick, or the coffee is too fine, or the flow control mechanism is failing to open properly. (For reference, I use Bunn filters in mine as they are taller and allow the water level to rise deeper in the basket before overflowing.)

Some things to look at: (1) make certain that you are using only one thickness of paper filter, (2) that you are only using coffee designed for your coffee maker (drip grind usually) and that (3) the mechanism is opening properly (not gunked up with dried coffee or whatever).

Keurig pot doesn't give a full cup of coffee

Maybe you need to clean the pot with vinegar and water on full cycle. Sometimes if you do not have a water filter on your faucet, the coffee maker tends to come out with little mineral or metal particals from your water source. Which tends to clog up the small holes in the coffee maker where the water flows thru. This happens after a lot of uses. You may want to do this at least 3 to four times. I set up mine like I am going to make a full pot of coffee. Then also use a coffee filter to check the amount of gunk that is collected. I hope this helps. I ended up buying a water filter and do not have a problem any more.

When I use the filter after a previous cup and it is still wet the coffee comes out very watery and undrinkable. When the filter is dry in the morning the coffee is perfect.

I'd suggest you try tamping with a bit more pressure, watery coffee is typically the result of water getting "around" the ground coffee as opposed to getting forced through it.

Clean light

Hello -

Regarding any coffee maker - some of the water in the reservoir is turned into steam during the brewing process resulting in a smaller volume of brewed coffee.

As for the Clean notice, it may just mean that the coffee filter basket needs to be cleaned. We wash ours every time after we brew coffee. Coffee residue builds up in the filter basket during use.

Best wishes.

Coffee grounds are over flowing into my coffee, what's wrong?

This is a very easy simple way to fix coffee grind overflow. I began using another filter on top of the coffee grinds in the basket. This prevents splattering when aggressive brewing or using more than the usual weak coffee measuring, I like mine strong but not bitter. Fixed the splatter and coffee grounds in the dispensing tank. Coffee filters are CHEAP at the dollar store.

Hamilton Beach BrewStation 12 cup Coffee Maker, coffee leaks into the bottom water reservoir after brewing.

there is a small rubber flap valve in the tank. if you carefully clean that on a regular basis your problem should end.

As coffee exits the BrewStation, it comes out in a weak flow at first, then it starts to run down the back missing the cup. Coffee runs down to the base. Must tilt the entire assembly to get some coffee....

The filter screen at the release valve is clogged with scaled coffee. You need twist and pop it out and clean with a steel wire brush and then pop it back in place.

Brewstation Leaks

Mine did the same thing, except I have the model #47665 because the model you have I had to replace twice. It would start/stop numerous times during brewing. Anyway, if yours leaks coffee the same as mine it's because the tiny plastic part holding the small rubber gasket that controls leaking (inside the tank under the screen) is most likely broken. Apparently it's a common problem. I called HB at 1-800-851-8900 and talked to customer support. They are sending me a whole new tank (cannot just fix the gasket) for the whopping price of $5.00 to cover shipping. That's right, $5.00 for shipping gets you a whole new tank. I love Hamilton Beach. They truly do stand behind their products. Again Hamilton Beach product support, 1-800-851-8900 good luck to ya........Katherine
